The world got a little less awesome today…

Howard Zinn stopped kicking ass after 87 years of age. The lifelong activist, historian and bard of the ordinary & the oppressed passed on today. He packed more into his time on Earth than most people could in twice that span, which obviously can’t be tested. He also left the world a much better place than it was when he had entered it.

    When I heard about this I really thought it was a joke. Zinn was one of those people that was supposed to live forever. It’s a serious shame.

    Oh my goodness! I say a title in my Google Reader about Zinn (haven’t read the post yet) and just thought he had written something new. He was one of my heroes.
